When I was a kid I asked my mom what the city bus was, and she told me, "It's stops and picks you up and takes you downtown." She didn't mention the fact that it was a voluntary thing, that you had to WANT to get on the bus and to pay a fare, so I just got the idea in my head that if I happened to be walking down the street and the bus came up alongside me it would just stop and abduct me, so for a long time I was very wary of the bus.
I thought that "jet black" referred to the kind of jet you fly in, which I found odd as I had never seen a black jet plane.
I thought human trafficking just meant people breaking traffic laws, and didn't get why people were so outraged about it
I used to believe that on military planes that have shark mouths painted on the nose I showed an aggressive look in which I was scared to see it.
I believed that if the car I was riding in ran over the match that someone had just thrown out of their window, that we would blow up.
As a kid, I took all road signs very literally. If it was 80 degrees in the summer, I wondered how the bridge would freeze before the road in such warm weather.
I thought that the picture of the swerving car on the “Road may be slippery ahead” signs was a car that had big robot legs.
In Italian the word for “steering wheel” is very similar to the word for “fly”, so I used to think that the steering wheel was a button you could push to make your car fly. I was seriously disappointed because my parents didn’t use it!
when I was a kid I used to look out of the car thinking a clown would attack me
When I was little, I used to believe that there was a man in the red lights. This man had to go through the red light at the green light. When the red light was long, I thought that the man was asleep. My parents told me that I was not true. They told me it was automatic. I was reassured because I thought that the man must be tired. Today when I'm at a red light, I still think about this anecdote and I laugh...
